To quote an old, but familiar song, “It’s the most wonderful time of the year”. And for a lot of us, this is true for many reasons: Time spent with family and friends; taking in all the winter decorations, lights and festivities; shopping for others; planning and going on road trips…the list goes on! For some of us, the opportunity to volunteer and help others is also what makes it the most wonderful time of the year.
According to www.socialforaction.com there are 10 reasons why volunteering is important: It is good for you, it saves resources, volunteers gain professional experience, it brings people together, it promotes personal growth and self-esteem, volunteering can strengthen the community, you learn a lot, you have the chance to give back, volunteering encourages civic responsibility, and you can make a difference. Every day we all have the chance to help others and to make a difference, and Reston Limo is certainly no different.
Reston Limo was selected earlier this year to be the transportation provider for the Afghan refugees here in NoVa. Recently, our drivers noticed how ill-prepared the refugees – especially the children – are for our winter months ahead and asked if we could organize a coat drive to help them this winter. It was obviously a no-brainer to say “YES” so with that request, our first Winter Clothes Drive has been created.
We are reaching out to all our employees, customers, and community partners to ask them to help us by donating warm winter clothes for newborns to teenagers and dropping them off at our office in Sterling. If you’d like to donate, we’d love it! We will be accepting donations December 1-17, 24/7, at our office in Sterling.
It certainly is the most wonderful time of the year when we can help others, appreciate what we have, and take in all that the holiday time has to offer.
Thank you for your continued business and support and we’ll see you in ’22!
Warm winter wishes,
